Project Systems and Controls

Systems and Controls have to be right from the start; they are your key feedback and diagnostic tools for a project, program or organization. Ensuring you get the best fit to your project, with full coverage of all the key components, is essential to establishing a system that you will actually use, and reap the benefits from its outputs. McLachlan Lister is a pioneer in project management techniques, employing best practice systems and controls to support innovative processes and outcomes. We can assist in reviews of current operations and methodologies, as well as advise on the development and setup of new ones. Case Studies

Dispute Resolution

Even the most carefully planned construction project can encounter claims. How those claims are handled can make a difference in the success of the project. Hill's expert approach to dispute resolution is broad-based and relies on the breadth and depth of industry expertise within our team. This diversity of skill is essential in analysing the often complex causation and damage components of a claim. We break a claim down event by event and issue by issue, such that clear and concise conclusions are reached to facilitate resolution of disputes. In the event expert testimony is required, our thorough understanding of complex issues enables us to present our independent professional opinion clearly and concisely to our clients, courts, tribunals and other dispute resolution forums.
